  • BY-ELECTION TO BE HELD IN ECCLES AFTER A MUCH LOVED COUNCILLOR RESIGNS

    Elections

    A by-election has been called to find a new councillor for Salford’s Eccles ward. 

    This follows the resignation of highly respected Councillor Peter Wheeler. 

    Peter recently moved from Salford and so thought it best that he steps down from the roll of councillor to allow a replacement to be found.

    The election will be held on Thursday 27 September 2018, with the count held at Salford Civic Centre from 10pm. 

    Nominations for candidates must be submitted by 4pm on 31 August 2018. 

    Jim Taylor, Returning Officer for Salford City Council, said:

    Quote

    “The by election has been called to find a new councillor to replace Councillor Peter Wheeler. In the coming weeks officers will be making arrangements for the election and sending out polling cards to those registered to vote in the Eccles ward.

    “Anyone not currently registered to vote has until 11 September 2018 to register which is easy to do online at www.gov.uk/registertovote or by calling 0161 793 2500. 

    “To check that you are already registered to vote in the by election, call us on 0161 793 2500. 

    “This is your opportunity to have your say on who represents your community and views on the council and make your mark in Salford.”
